." i would have rather seen 13 hours of this from india, indian army stunt man has set out to accomplish the impossible. attempting to ride a moving motorcycle while standing atop a 15 foot ladder for eight hours in a row. donald rumsfeld there was not impressed. the old record is eight hours but interrupted by short breaks. he said he wanted to set the record to bring glory to his indian army daredevil team, plus he was worried he was losing his cool. i may have that mixed up with that shark episode of happy days. anyway, he broke the record. congratulations. and bye. to beijing and artist hong chin who does not let anything go to waste after he puts it down. some throw away the hair after it falls on the flow. mr. chin uses it to build sculptures. the famous building in tiananmen square. had used red dye for some of the walls and also does a brisk walk-in clown business. he has plans to build more communist buildings this year and also collecting dandruff to create a snowy winter scene and i made that last part up. and back to finland for the world's sauna championships.

a recent trip to china and india and pointed out clearly that not only are those countries do okay, but in some ways they're thriving, growing at 5, 6, 7%, even as the u.s. economy retracts. and ultimately, this global meltdown could be a tipping point from both of those countries to truly standing on par in some real ways with the u.s. and europe. other interesting unintended consequences, as we heard the president of iran, ahmadinejad, say he was going to make fairly significant appointments of women to his cabinet, that was certainly not the expectation three to six months ago as the election in iran neared, certainly not as the chaos that ensued. but what's so interesting about the world, you never know exactly what's going to happen and some of the pushback that's happened in iran has led to that. and it led me to wonder, what will be the consequences or unintended consequences of this august recess? the obama administration feared the recess, thinking it would put a stop on health care reform. but what if this new strategy brings president obama out, ultimately liberates demo
